Pasting Text from
To preserve the integrity of the display of a page across all computer
configurations, strict HTML conventions should be observed when
formatting a document. When using the (X)HTML editor tools to
format text typed directly into the editor, these conventions are met and
there is no cause for concern.
When copying and pasting from other sources, non-compliant
formatting can slip into the page. To avoid this complication the
(X)HTML editor provides paste options to help weed out formatting
that will not display universally.
Pastes clipboard contents with all formatting.
Paste from Word
Pastes text copied from Word without Word-
Paste as Text
Pastes clipboard contents without any formatting
from the original; hard returns are also removed.
When using the keyboard shortcut or secondary mouse button to
paste, a list of options appears. These options correspond to the
three paste buttons in the table above.
For pages where the text has already been pasted, or in situations where
pasting as straight text are not practical, the (X)HTML Editor provides a
way to remove formatting.
The Cleaner tool
provides several options to remove hidden (and
visible) formatting. Which tool used depends on what needs to be
To Use the Cleaner Tool:
1. Select the text to clean in the edit tab of the (X)HTML Editor.
2. Choose the arrow to the right of the Cleaner tool.
3. Select the desired cleaning option.
4. Switch to the HTML tab in the (X)HTML Editor to verify that the
code is cleaned.
It may take several passes to remove most of the unwanted code.
For example, a page may require first removing formatting, then
removing style/class, then removing span tags.
